Water in front of the Pulliam Plant stays open all year round. While I was eying up industrial reflections in the water today, there was a fellow in an older van–and no, he did not offer me candy–who was busy with his binoculars pointed skyward, studying an eagle circling the area.

Perhaps it was a buzzard eying up Wabi Sabi.  She does not move as quickly as she once did.

No, no. It was an eagle. While it is true that Wabi Sabi moves with deliberate speed on potentially icy surfaces, there are several eagles who nest near the Pulliam Plant year round.

I find this resident population of eagles has really streamlined my spiritual life. In the past, I would have to fast and pray and then go sit under a tree and wait for an eagle to appear with a vision for my quest.

Now I grab a coffee in a to-go cup, drive down to the nesting area  and drum my fingers on the steering wheel until an idea occurs to me.

One and done.

    Very nice. I just had a very harrowing experience with pigeons at our Shopko. Wabi Sabi was fortunate the sacred Eagles didn’t drop off a segno di Dio.

  2. the “candy” reference cracked me up! (actually several parts of what you wrote, made me chuckle.) love the reflections in the icy waters!

    Hey Wabi Sabi, Merry Christmas. Hope you have a great time with the family. We are having turkey + + + with Suzy’s Sister and partner and my sister at a fairly classy hotel. Said partner is a non drinker so he is of course nominated! Then my Son, Wife and daughter arrive. Looking forward to that! Cheers!

    • Merry Christmas back to you, Andy. Starting out quietly here–Skyping with the far-flung clans tonight and then Saturday, the Minnesota family arrives for four days. It sounds as though your holidays will be most wonderful with special Grandpa sparkle as a bonus topping. 🙂 Peace to you and yours.
